The Ancient Language, and the Dialect of Cornwall, with an Enlarged Glossary of Cornish Provincial Words

By Frederick W.P. Jago

Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English,, this glossary was published in 1882 by Frederick W. P. Jago (1817–92) in an effort to describe and preserve the dialect as it too declined and it is an invaluable record of a disappearing dialect and way of life.

Title: Spoken Discourse and Social Interaction
Written By: Alan Firth
URL: http://www.us.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Linguistics/SociolinguisticsAnthropologicalL/?view=usa&ci=9780340741849
Description:

"Spoken Discourse and Social Interaction" is an indispensable guide to a
burgeoning and fascinating field of study. In twenty-two concise and highly
readable chapters, Alan Firth outlines the key concepts, dominant
approaches and major findings in spoken interaction research over the last
four decades. Rather than being tied to a particular approach or paradigm,
the book offers a comprehensive and inclusive overview, where emphasis is
placed on describing the interactional and contextual nature of spoken
discourse in a variety of contexts and social encounters. Topics covered
include beginnings, endings, approaches, context, culture and ethnicity,
data and transcription, analysis, identity, power, gender, narrative,
miscommunication, humor, institutional interaction, grammar and coherence,
argument, and embodied discourse. This book will be essential reading for
students of linguistics, sociology, communication and media studies,
psychology, and anthropology.

The book includes discussion questions for each chapter, suggestions for
further reading, and a glossary of key terms.
